No. 2: Heavy Seas Loose Cannon IPA( Algerina Perna, Baltimore Sun / March 27, 2014 )
$10.99/6-pack, 7.25 percent ABV
It's almost as pleasant to smell as it is to sip Loose Cannon. This beer put Heavy Seas on the map -- and for good reason: It's fragrant and hoppy but also incredibly smooth and satisfying. All too often, IPAs blow out your taste buds. Loose Cannon glides right over them.
